Technical details about the collection Portraits de mode (Fashion portraits)

For this collection, Jacques Samuel used both traditional working methods and traditional materials such as: primed wood using old fashion ways, types of grain and texture of canvases, white Leads colour, choice of resins for varnishes, animal skin glue, boiled oils.
He was inspired by many Masters and used the specific raw materials and techniques for each period, as provided by History of Art.

Some words from the artist about the collection Portraits de mode

"Couturiers and fashion designers have an innovative function in the society similar to trendsetters, as has been the case for great masters (i.e, Masaccio, Ingres, Raphaël, Picasso…).
These artists provided Artworks in the broad sense of the term, and not only special paintings. That is the intangible reality of such masters in History of Art.
I became the medium between a finished life and its universal representation.
The challenge seemed so disproportionate, ambitious and intimate, that I could not escape from achieving it.
The intended result sought to highlight both the spirits of missing elders and the personal trends, which are provided by those creators who manipulate our fantasies with a magic touch". Fashion portraits

Some words from the artist about the collection Tronies

"These artworks are based on two parallel investigations.
One focussing on the spontaneous or premeditated gesture through which the original line is created.
From this initial line, I develop an architectural drawing similar to an "echo" by repeating forms and gesture.

The other consists in watching archived films and focuses on crowds of unknown people.
My picture becomes an haven, a vehicle or a space for these blurred ghost-like figures and give them a re-birth.
The title Tronie allows them to preserve their anonymous nature".

Portraits de mode

In 1997, the artist Jacques Samuel (pseudonym for Samuel Salloum) proposed to the couturiers and the fashion designers, to paint their portraits with techniques of old masters. Ten of them accepted:

  • Anne-Marie Beretta like Piero della Francesca
  • Jean-Charles de Castelbajac like Titien
  • Jean-Paul Gaultier like Botticelli
  • Kenzo like Gauguin
  • Christian Lacroix like Toulouse-Lautrec
  • Claude Montana like Rembrandt
  • Paco Rabanne like Vélasquez
  • Sonia Rykiel like Klimt
  • Chantal Thomass like Modigliani

With this collection, Jacques Samuel higlighted the beauty, the dream world and the creativity. Above all, the couturiers and designers who were concerned by this artistic event, accepted generously and spontaneously to sell their portraits for the benefit of the Children’s Foundation.
